Create an itinerary including Millennium Elephant Foundation
Take a walk with elephants at Millennium Elephant Foundation, a 6 hectare (15 acre) rescue and rehabilitation center dedicated to caring for these majestic creatures. Captive elephants in Sri Lanka are common--they're often not only used as a sign of wealth and as tourist attractions, but also as labor for the logging industry. This foundation raises awareness about elephant mistreatment and promotes the phasing out of elephant rides and the ban of Howdah elephant chairs. After a stroll with these mighty creatures, help an elephant relax in a refreshing river bath. Volunteers as well as tourists are welcome at the foundation. Put Millennium Elephant Foundation on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kegalle trip planner.

  • The place has 6 elephants, visit costed us 15$ each. The guide from the place was nice and helpful. In general not a bad visit but a bit overpriced for what we got.

  • Very nice. To see few elephants close by. Although they say riding on elephant is bad, you can still sit on the elephant. What is a bit contradicting. Nevertheless we enjoyed the walk with the elephants side by side and the bathing of her.
  • The best experience ever. We love how much they care about the elephants 🐘 We had Laksmi with us for the tour, we gave her food, we were walking with her and in the and we gave her bath 🛁 ❤️
